School Uniform

Every child is expected to come in school uniform each day.

We want all our pupils to:
– look smart
– share a sense of belonging to our school
– set and maintain high standards for themselves and others
– feel and convey pride in representing our school
– learn to take responsibility for themselves

Please don’t forget to label all uniform with your child’s name. Each phase does have a lost property box for any misplaced items.

Everyday School Uniform

The details of our uniform are as follows.

  • A white or navy polo shirt/long-sleeved shirt (with or without embroidered St Oswald’s badge)
